When Julian Montague rolls into a small mill town on the back side of nowhere, he isn’t looking for any trouble. He’s broke and fallen on hard times—but his idea to run from a license check on a main highway has backfired. He went off road on his motorcycle and now he’s hopelessly lost and almost out of gas. Stopping at the only station in town, he's confronted by bullies with a gun who insist he’s on the “wrong side of the line” and then proceed to attack him. Fighting them off, he heads for the dubious safety of the “other side” when he’s attacked by a wild animal and crashes, almost killing himself. Waking up tied to a bed, he's startled to find his injuries are being tended by a large, handsome man named Leo who bosses him around, showers him with affection and insists on calling him kitty. Something is going on in this strange town called Hell’s Creek, involving the large paper mill and the strange inhabitants who live in separate territories and answer only to the Company. Julian needs to find out what it is before he finds himself the “mate” of another man—and the main problem with that is that he’s beginning to like the idea way too much.
Lion's Mate by TS McKinney and Shannon West is the first book in the Hell's Creek series. I actually really adored this book. Has a great storyline that is really original also the pace to this book is very good. I liked the ideas introduced in this book and cannot wait for more.
Julian grew up in foster care. His parents died when he was five. He is aimlessly driving trying to find purpose. He is a good person who just happens to have a knack for finding trouble no matter where he goes. He also has no idea about shifters or what he really is.
Leo is loving, caring, and super sexy. He is also an alpha male. He likes to be in charge.
Over all these two are really good together. They have a little of what the other needs so it makes them great mates. I loved the twist at the end of this book. I also want to see where does the town go from here. There are a lot of shake ups and changes and I cannot wait to see what is next.
